Dear Passengers,  

Thank you for joining us behind our world famous steam locomotive, Pere Marquette 1225 (PM 1225), from the Historic Ann Arbor Depot in Howell, during the Howell Melon Festival!  We are so excited to have you join us for the opening of our 2017 operating season for the PM 1225. We are looking forward to seeing all of your smiling faces very soon. =)

Some general information about the train, boarding and unloading can take some time so please be patient.  We are operating vintage train coaches and there are limited bathrooms so it may be a good idea to be mindful of that as you prepare for your trip. Your car hosts are available to assist you with any questions you may have.  

Thank you for joining us at the Howell Melon Festival!
